18 List of specific rules of 1844 Switzerland
Here's a list ofthe rules in 1844 Switzerland that differ from the "usual 18xx fare"(meaning 1830 + when you build, the track must be runnable by the company). This is not a substitute of the manual, just a small teaching aid or quick summary of the more specific rules that usually vary from one 18xx to another. Since I wrote this before I even got to play the game, there might be some mistakes or omissions. Please warn me of any, and I'll correct them.
